Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me and indicate that I have granted you permission on those other websites. I have, however, found several of my photos posted on the web and in family trees on commercial sites without my permission. I have to say that I'm shocked that someone would do this without asking permission. Again, please just ask before taking anything from the memorials and posting them elsewhere.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

The exact location for my great, great, great grandfather Martin Johnson who was born in 1777 and migrated from Warren County, Tennessee to Madison County, Arkansas in 1835 has been somewhat of a mystery. He died in 1852. The Johnson family history book written many years ago by Ruby Johnson Wideman lists the old Martin Johnson Cemetery in Madison County, Arkansas as his final resting place. I have a cousin who swears that he is actually buried in the Neal Cemetery. I and some of my family members found the tombstone for M. F. Johnson as posted by you, in the Martin Johnson Cemetery recently. Can you give some verification that M. F. Johnson might be our Martin Johnson?

I am asking for permission to use your photo for my family tree. You have photographed several in different cemeteries in cemeteries in Madison County. My connections in that area are Cornett, Combs and Brashears mainly. I have no problem giving you credit for the photos I would use. Thank you for helping us find our relations graves. Jim
